Plan Description

Looking for a Gran Fondo Specific Training Plan?

Here are some of my proven workouts I used to win the KOM competition for Hincapie's Gran Fondo, multiple editions of the Alpine Loop Gran Fondo, and even the 2019 GFNY World Championship!

This 10-week plan is for experienced riders who have at least 12 weeks of base training and 3 weeks of harder tempo riding to build foundation.

Most mid-week workouts are limited to 2 hours or less and Mondays and Fridays are light or off with one longer 4-7 hour weekend ride.

Start this plan after a very low volume rest week (tsb of 20+)

Incorporated in this plan are structured power-based workouts, strength conditioning for better endurance and power late-race and scenario-based training that lets you hone your skill and pacing for your best performance on game day!

IF you decide to race, reduce TSS accordingly by replacing the equivalent workout that is most similar.

Are you ready to boost your top end for a action packed 10-week ramp up?
